ABSTRACT
Relations between British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) and Labor Members of Parliament worsened Tuesday as one parliamentarian compared the pubcaster's annual report to disgraced energy giant Enron. BBC director general Greg Dyke, who went to the Great Britain House of Commons to present the report to the Media Select Committee, was predictably furious and called Labor MP Chris Bryant's comments "outrageous." Relations between the corporation and the government are already disturbed over BBC's coverage of the Iraq war. While Bryant, a former BBC executive, had said he was happy to apologize over any inference that BBC was financially corrupt, he stood by his comments about the report's failure to admit the pubcaster's failings.
